The Reggae Thread

Recommended Posts

I searched around and was pretty stunned to see no Reggae Thread so I figured I might as well start one.  I'm currently listening to my Reggae mix on my phone.  Post your favorites. This is what is on at the moment.

They were always a lot of fun at Mercado Caribe back in the day.

Is ska/blue-eyed reggae fair game?

Sure.  I used to see the Killer Bees at Oyster Bake every year.  I also may or may not have smoked a joint with them on stage at Irie's on Fredricksburg Road back in the day.

Old school Liberty Lunch fans remember. The white guy in the band with the blonde dreads lived across the street from me when they were big. I’m still high.

Anyone listen to Jamaican Gold on 91.7 KOOP? It's been on every Sunday from noon to 2 pm for 20-ish years. The show is an Austin treasure, imo.

I'm a pretty basic bitch when it comes to reggae.  Tough to beat this one.

 

For a long time I didn't know that this song was about barometric pressure.

I always assumed it was some sort of metaphor for being under stress.

Yeah, it probably is. But a sudden drop in a rudimentary barometer was about a 30 minute 'Oh Shit' warning to poor islanders before the intertrons.

No doubt.  Barometric pressure is an awfully important thing in that part of the world.
